Join Isabella for a two-week Ashtanga yoga retreat 26 October to 8 November 2019 at magic (!!) Purple Valley Yoga Retreat Centre in Goa India. Take the chance to immerse yourself in your yoga practice with an experienced teacher; spend time in amazing surroundings and enjoy delicious vegetarian food. You can come for one week or two! Please note that beginners need to attend the first week of the retreat. Book before 30 September and get a 20% discount!

During this retreat we will focus on the healing aspects of the Ashtanga yoga method and its impact on the nervous system, our mental health and general well-being. Throughout retreat we’ll look at and explore how different types of movement and breath (asana and pranayama), mindfulness and focus (dristhi and sense withdrawal), vocalisation (chanting) and behavioural exercises may improve our ability to handle stress, make us stronger and more balanced on all levels as well as empower us in our daily lives. The retreat aims to give all participants an insight into how practice on the mat is related to and can improve our functioning in different relationships on a societal and personal level.

We combine practical and theoretical classes and participants should be prepared for hard yet rewarding work. Focus will also be on helping each student to practice safely and provide him/her with tools to progress and keep up their Sadhana also after the retreat.

Classes consist of daily morning practice Mysore style and afternoon workshops 4 times/week. On a couple of occasions we’ll also hold a guided Primary series class in traditional Sanskrit count. All levels of practitioners are welcome, advanced as well as beginners. Participants who are completely new to yoga will be given a special introduction the first few days in order to allow for more independence later.  Beginners are therefore encouraged to come at least the first week.

Workshop programme:

The schedule will be as follows (we reserve the right to change certain aspects of the schedule to fit the students attending the 2-week course):

Sun 27 Oct: Back to basics – Breath and movement awareness

Thu 7 Nov: Asana clinic: from down dog to headstand – challenging inversions without fear

Each workshop session will include elements of breathing and movement techniques, asana exploration at different levels, chanting and/or relaxation exercises. Part of each session will be devoted to theory, elements of yoga philosophy and practical exploration. The retreat aims to create a safe and inclusive climate promoting healthy dialogue and exchange between the teacher and students as well as among the participants themselves. Students are encouraged to come with a beginner’s mind, ask questions and share their insights with the teacher and the group. Welcome!
